    Maybe he could help fill the void in ice dance by switching disciplines, so he won't have to worry about the jumps. Like so: http://youtu.be/oLM635FLwTA

    That sounds complicated!
    Seriously though, I doubt he'll switch to dance, he'll have to learn different basics in a short period of time, and try lifts. Not to say he can't do it well, but to get to the elite level in dance in just one quad with almost no history of it? Maybe unlikely, as much fun as the idea was in theory!

    Considering he won the men's event in Sochi with the lowest BV in the FS maybe he IS bionic

    Maybe he can go for Bronze at Sochi Wolds in 2017, Or maybe more

    I was hoping he'd move to Japan and skate pairs with Mao. (Historic?) side-by-side triple axels?

    (100% joke of course, learning pairs might be even harder than ice dance, and twice as dangerous.)

    Just the word "lift" makes me cringe for his poor back.... He and Mao can do the side-by-side 3As in shows, though.

    (Side note - I swear there was a routine he and Mao did together in a show - no side-by-side 3As - where he was wearing a red shirt and black trousers, and she was in a silver top and black skirt... alas, that is all I remember, really, other than being fairly sure the show was in Japan - and I can't seem to find it when I search Youtube... sigh.)

    I've seen gifs of that too! They did side-by-side double axels, I think. I can't find a video of it anywhere either... I think it was The Ice 2010 but I'm not sure.

    Call to other posters: if anyone can find a video of the routine, LRK and I will be really grateful!

    And eek, I know, lifts... I don't think they'd be worse than quads though (that's not saying much...). He does have the advantage of being fairly tall for a singles skater (versus, say, someone like Dai trying to switch to pairs... though best wishes to Dai if he wants to do that).

    There are gifs of this on Tumblr and the tags say it's from The Ice 2010 show. I haven't been able to find the video either.

    He had a bit of previous experience as well...here he is at summer camp (1996) skating pairs.

    Lifts would probably be worse because it would be a different direction of force on his already-fragile back.

    Tall for a singles skater, yes. But very short for a pairs man.

    Nah, really he is about average for a pairs man... he is the same height as Dylan Moscovich, taller than Robin Szolkowy, Marvin Tran and Rockne Brubaker. Many many pairs men are 5'11" which is just 1" taller than him. Height would not be the issue.

    That was deleted on Youtube. But if you really want to see the video you can http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?dv5565zm447m72m

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qi2hSPGHyXc montage about Mao and Plushy. In that time many FS fans called them "Maoshenko" .
    How to learn their number and Plushy said his famous sentence in Japanese language: I can skate a little https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qi2hSPGHyXc&t=0m49s

    Plushy asked a kiss from Mao in 2010 at Vancouver in a practice and in this show Plushy kissed Mao's head. Japan was so surprised because of it!

    @Sandpiper - See! It's been so long since I saw it that I didn't even remember that they did side-by-side jumps at all... Sigh...

    @galiavich - Thanks! As for the 1996 one, I'd seen that before - but ended up watching it again - he really went for it, didn't he?

    @plushyfan - Well, the vid seems to have gone from there as well. Unless the link, when I clicked on it, lied. Well, it doesn't matter I suppose, as I really don't know much about downloading and our computer is on its last legs anyway, and may die on us any day... (sour grapist) Thanks for the other links as well, though!

    Aww, too bad the video's gone. Thanks anyway, plushyfan. I wouldn't have even known where to start looking. Maybe we'll find it some other time!

    @LRK Off topic, but sorry to hear about your computer.

    I'm sure this isn't new to many but I just found it and thought it would be fun to put it here.

    Interview after the 2010 Olympic Gala.
